VOL. 5. NO. 35. JUDITH GAP. MONTANA! FRIDAY. JULY 11, 1913. PRICE, FIVE CENTS ESSENTIAL POINTS FOR DAIRY COW 0. C. Gregg, the celebrated dairy expert and farm lecturer from Min nesota, gives the following live poi uts to guide in selecting a good dairy cow. 1. Thin and sharp in the crops (back of shoulders). Broad, fleshy crops indicate a short milker. 2. Large barrel. The capacity to consume large quantities of food governs the capacity to give milk. A large roomy workshop is necessary to take care of raw materials. S. Capacious udder, long and wide in its body attachment. Hoorn be tween the thighs is important. A meaty udder is not desirable, but oue that milks down has much loose skin when empty. 4. Milk wells large—the orifices in the body walls through which the milk veins pass back to the heart. These "weirs* * indicate the amount cf blood flow. 5. The eye indicates the nervous' energy. It is the gauge of the engine or nervous svstem, that drives the ▼ital organs of the body. If these five points are right you are sure to have a good dairy cow. "Of these,'* says Mr. Gregg, "1 con aider the large milk wells most im portant and the best index to the dairy capacity of the cow." MANY JUNE RAINS PREVENTED FIRES Because of the almost daily rains in Montana during the Mouth of June tires were at the minimum. We have clipped six very good rules from an exchange believing that they are ▼erv essential for the people of this aection as well as of other sections of the state. 1— Be sure your match is out before you throw it away. 2— Knock out your pipe ashes or throw your cigar or cigarette stump where there is nothing to catch lire. *8—Don't build a camp fire any larger than is absolutely necessary. Hever leave it even for a short time without putting it OUT with water or dirt. 4— Don't build a camp fire against a tree or log. Build a small one where you can scrape away the needles, leaves or grass from all sides of it. 5— Don't build bonfires. The wind may come up at any time and start a dre you cannot control. 6— If you discover a fire, put it out if possible; if you can't, get word of it to the nearest United States forest rauger or state lire warden just as quickly as you possibly can.

L, Nichols, who was arrested last Sunday on a charge of carrying concealed weapons and threatening to shoot Honald E. Coyle, was ac quitted by a jury in Justice of Peace Headers court here on Wednesday. It seems that trouble has been brewing for some time between Nich ols and Coyle over matters that will usually arise between neighbors who, it may be said, live iu the same yard. The difficulties came to a head ou July 8, when the two men met on the roadway in front of the Nichols home aud Nichols drew his gun, as he ex plained, in self defense because Coyle threatened to make him take back some words. From the evidence produced tiie jury had to ponder for over three hours to decide whether the gun was concealed or not and whether or not the roadway in front of the Nichols ranch was the property of the ranch even though it was outside the fence. Two thirds of the jury finally de cided that the gun was partially con cealed and that Nichols was ou his land at the time of the trouble even though he was outside his fence, on land which he had left for a road, but which has never been dedicated as a public highway. Assistant County Attorney Hus band, of ilarlowtou, appeared in be half af the (State and Attorney Kirk land defended Mr. Nichols. J. 11. Lackey, John Coulan, Leo Buleu, 11. D. Jones, John McCauley aud Frank Arth were the jurors who sat on the case. Considerable evidence was pro duced showing that Nichols was in the habit of carrying concealed weapons at all times, but on tins oc casion the evidence was not conclu sive enough to warrant a verdict of guilty, It goes without saying that upon the next occasion that William Nichols has a firearm concealed about his person off his own laud he will be taken into custody and will not fare so well as lie did iu this last escapade.

Butler, state veterinar ian, in bis report for June, states that hundreds of settlers from differ ent sections of the country, have packed up their belongings and moved to Montana, where they have settled on the rich agricultural lauds that are still to be found in this state. The following is a portion of the report: (Still they come! Montaun, the glo rious Treasure state an I home of plenty, still continues to bethemeCca of the homeseeker. June, usually light compared with other mouths in this season of the rear, furnished 80 days in which emigrants packed their household goods and loaded their stock in an exact two dozen states and provinces, tagged their cars and accompanied their shipments Mon tanawurd to join the rapidly increas ing throng of happy home seekers. Forty-three of North Dakota's scions fell to the wiles of Montana's husbandry and the environments of the Treasure slate, bringing with them 187 head of horses anil 75 head of cattle. Twenty-eight Canadian farmers, recently brought to the Do minion by flagrant reports of the great chances in King George's do main have now become enlightened to the truth that Montana offers far greater opportunities than any other likearea on the American continent. The Canadian emigrants are return ing to Montana to try their luck ill the Treasure state, and, as evidence of their good intention of remainiug here, brought iu with them a total of 88 head of horses during June. Iowa sent 21 families, 1)8 horses, 4il cattle and seven swine; Minnesota, 18 fam ilies, 03 horses. 17 cattle and one swine; South Dakota, 13 families, 75 horses, and 22 swine. Shipments also came in from the following states iu order of number of certifications: Cert. Horses. Cattle. Swiue.

These figures for the first seven months in 11)13 (De cember included in the 11)13 report) that there have been 2,0(11) families brought 11,064 head of horses, 5,141 head of cattle and 523 head of swine. In each instance these figures are far greater in number than those for the entire twelve month period of last year. Although we still have five more mouths left in 11)13, yet we have al ready received 540 more importa tions, 3,284 more horses, 651) more cattle and 130 more swine than we did the eutire year 1012 and this would indicate that 1013 will per haps break all previous importation records. It certainly should substantiate the many reports that have been made to the effect that Moutana is setting up more rapidly than any other state or province iu America.—Billings Ga zette. Ths Kick of the Cook. During one of his first tours in tli? Cniteil States 1'uderewski enjoyed a dinner which was e«|iial to anything he could have expected iu one of Ilu best Parisian restaurants. lie was so surprised and pleased that he sent his thanks and compliments to flu* chef. A tew yeurs later, happening to be in the same city, he again went to that restaurant. The meal he got was still far above the average, hut wits not so good as before. However, on the occa sion of a third visit he again tried the same place The food was uninterest ing from the beginning of the meal to the end. He asked the bead waiter whether the former chef hnd left He had not left, the waiter informed him. und. on being pressed for an explanation of the change in the quality of the meals, be ■aid: "If you had to play, night after night before au audience of barbarians who did not appreciate the best things in your performance, would you con tinue year after year to piny ns well as you do now?"—Henry T. Fink's "Food and Flavor." FORESTRY DISPLAY AT STATE FAIR Helena, Mont., July 10.—The Unit ed Stales department of forestry will be an exliiifitnr at tlie Montaipi state fair, September 22-27, F. A. Silcox, district forester, having made ar rangements with Secretary Breiten Btein to this effect.

The lawyer had not always been wealthy: the client had not alwnys been downtrodden. In the elevators of life they had passed each other, one going down, the other going tip, says the Clevelnnd Plain Denier. And now they were quoting proverbs nt each other. "A fool and bis money are soon part ed!" sneered the attorney. "Lawyers' houses are built with fools' money !" came back the client. Which showed the man who heard this bit of repartee the truth of the statement that those who live In glass houses shouldn't throw stones. A few more might be added, but this will do for the present. STAMPS ON PARCELS WILL BE R EGULAR The postmaster general has issued an order discontinuing the use of special parcel post stamps, commenc ing July 1. Ordinary stamps can lie used on parcel post packages either for postage, insurance or C. O. 1). purposes, and parcel post stamps can lie used on letters or third class mat ter. Commemorative stamps can al so be used for all purposes. No more parcel post stamps will be printed when the present supply lias beeu ex hausted. This order will be a great conven ience to the public and to the em ployes of the postotiice department everywhere. These special stamps were originally required so that the department could determine about how much was received directly from this new department and what it cost the government extra. It is interesting to note it: this con nection that only three weeks ago the Tri-State Postmasters' associa tion at St. Paul passed a resolution asking the department to dispense with the use of these special stamps as soon as possible. DOMESTIC DRUDGERY. No Matter How Burdensome It May Be, Homes Will Always Exist. No matter how many girls spurn housework, homes will still exist. No matter how innny women slink dis couraged into hotels and hoarding houses, the best of families will al ways live In separate homes. No mat ter how many men remain unmarried, the majority will always have wives and children. The millennium Itself will uot be without the family. Hotels and boarding houses, even, are merely inegntherinnizod homes, and no matter how much sensible co operation In washing and sewing, cook ing mid the cure of children and sick folk, may he compassed, even those nillleninirlmis will still have hods to he made, floors to he swept, doors to be tended, clothes to he sorted, buttons to lie sewed on. papers to be burned, dishes to tie washed, errands to lie run and windows to he locked. Folks may live without concerts and trolley cal's and lxioks. hut they cannot live without sleeping, dressing mid eat ing. alelusM, visitors and children, uor can they live .without that perpetual disorder that has to be perpetually cleured up, and that perpetual disin tegration of the material unlTerse whidi has to be perpetually swept up. Domestic work there will always be. The family Itself may do it. or they may pay some one else to do It. or they may do part and pay some oue else to do part, but done It must be.—Annie Wlnsor Allen in Atlantic Magazine. I !

E COAL OUTPUT IN MONTANA According to a repot t of tiie Geo graphical survey the production of coal in Montana in 1912 amounted to 3,043,495 tons, valued at $5,342,168. This is the first time that the output of the state lias passed 3,000,000 tons. The first record of coal productions I in Montana was made thirty-two ! years ago, in 1880, when the output amounted to only 224 tons. Up to I 1888 the development had been rather slow, the output in that year amount ing to 41,407 tons. It rose to 363,801 tonsin 1889 and increased rapidly un til 1895, when it reached the total of about 1,500,000 tons. It averaged approximately that quantity each year until 1904. and has since shown an increasing tendency, reaching the maximum of 3,048,495 tons in 1912. Tiie report says the coal fields of Montana are widely scattered and their output ranges in quality from lignite to bituminous coal of a fair grade. Nearly all of the eastern third or Great l'laius section of the state is underlaid by lignite and low grade bituminous coal. Toward the mountainous district the coals pass into high grade snh-hitiiniiuous coals. These occur for the most part in small and much scattered aieas. In tlu* valley region of the western part of the state the coal grades again into lignite, lint unlike those of the east ern part they are widely scattered and at piesent are not of economic importance.—Lewistown Daily News.
